Re: Best year GSXR? Any size
Well, maybe you guys can help me if I give you some details. I'll probably purchase another bike in about 3 years or so.
I love the looks of the 2000-2004 GSXR. The rest are great but that's my favorite.
THe 01 750 was my 3rd bike and I barely even tapped into the power of that thing. A 1,000 would be nice but I think that's just way too much power for putting around town and daily riding. It was also a boat. So big and heavy.
So I was thinking I'd get a late model 600 or maybe even a 00-04 600. Or another 750. Is there much of a difference between the 600 or 750 of the same years?
What do you guys recommend? Should I just go for a 00-04 600? I was thinking I could do that and then get something like a power commander and I'd be set. It'd be more nimble, cheaper, cheaper insurance, etc.
What are the power range differences between the two and the years? I'd assume a 600 would be more high end and a 750+ might be more low end/torque?
